Federal bureaucrats are urging that white man Stewart Parnell receive a life long prison sentence today. Stewart Parnell, former Peanut Corporation of America President, knowingly allowed peanut butter to become sold that was tested for salmonella. Nine people died from this salmonella laden peanut butter.
His peanuts that he knew were tainted with salmonella also made over seven hundred people sick. He was convicted in September of two thousand fourteen and is just now being sentenced. A jury found this white food criminal, guilty of seventy one counts including conspiracy, obstructing justice, wire fraud, as well as other crimes relating to this salmonella outbreak that he created in two thousand eight.
A federal judge won’t dish out a sentence until September 21, 2015. Allegedly, this is first ever food poisoning case in an American court. This white man was never charged with murder or intentionally making people sick.
He knew those peanuts were infected with salmonella. Stewart Parnell has claimed he ate some of this peanut butter and even served some to his own family. Perhaps he was lying or trying to off his own family?
Peanut Corporation of America used falsified safety reports, in order to sell salmonella tainted peanuts to companies such as Kellogg’s. His brother Michael Parnell was also convicted but for less charges. Ken Hodges, Stewart Parnell’s lawyer calls a possible life in prison sentence “That recommendation is truly absurd”.
The fact this white man murdered nine people and injured over seven hundred but did not get charged for murder or is facing a death penalty to me is absurd. Perhaps this outcome is because he is white. We shall see how long he is sentenced for in September.
